Installing a Glacier Bay/Delta/Peerless/Aqueous/Luxury Line Kitchen Sink Faucet
Apply a layer of plumber’s waterproof silicon grease to the
large Glacier Bay O-rings-RP60074 that fit around the outside of the faucet body.
Role the greased O-rings down over the top of the faucet body
into their respective grooves. Use a small flat tip screwdriver; carefully guide each O-ring into position. The
O-rings need to be straight and not twisted in any way.
Grease the plastic friction ring located at the bottom of the
faucet body, resting on the base plate. This friction ring helps the spout to glide
Apply a thin layer of plumber’s silicon grease to the inside of
the faucet spout.
Insert a new Glacier Bay diverter stem-RP70037 into the front
side of the kitchen faucet body (If your faucets designed with one). It should hold itself in place, if not; put a
little grease on it to make it stick.
Slide the faucet spout down over the faucet body. Hold the base of the spout level with the top
of the faucet body and gently push the spout down with palm of your hand. Slowly turn the spout left and right
while pushing down. The spout should slide on easily. If not, make sure you used the correct O-rings, and that they
are well lubricated.
Insert the new Glacier Bay seats and springs-RP22008 into the
back two ports inside the faucet body. Slide the seat and small end of the spring up on the hex wrench. Aim the
wrench into the port and slide them down into the faucet. You will need to work the rubber seat into the port with
your finger. Repeat for the second set of seats and springs. Some plumbers like to put a small amount of grease on
the seats before they install them.
Install the new Glacier Bay stainless steel ball-RP22007. Line
up the long slot in the side of the mixer ball with the small metal guide sticking out from the top of the faucet
body toward the inside of the faucet. Set the ball into the faucet with the stem sticking straight up. The ball
must align correctly in order for the faucet to operate. You can coat the ball with grease before you install
Set the Glacier Bay cam washer-RP70108 on top of the ball,
rubber side down. Grease is ok on the rubber side of the cam packing as well.
Set the plastic Glacier Bay cam-RP70107 in place on top of the
cam-packing washer. The triangle-shape stem guide in the center of the cam must face forward, and the small plastic
arm on the side of the cam must set into the notch in the top of the faucet body. Depending on the strength of the
new metal springs, they will push up on the cam assembly and not allow the cam to stay in alignment. This is ok for
Grease the inside treads of the cap and the outside threads of
the faucet body lightly. This will keep corrosion and mineral buildup from locking the threads together.
Slide the Glacier Bay cap-RP80179 up on your index finger with
the Glacier Bay adjusting ring-RP70138 facing up. Press down on the cam with the same finger and let the cap slide
down on top of the faucet body. Hold the cam in place one finger; use your other hand to screw the cap onto the
faucet body as tightly as you can by hand. Do not use any tool to tighten the cap at this
Tighten the adjustment ring
with your needle-nose pliers. Spread the end of the pliers open and set the ends of the pliers into the grooves
on the top of the adjustment ring. Turn the ring clockwise until you feel tension on the pliers.
